Danny Drinkwater is one player that is relishing getting his career back on track after his torrid stint at the club. The England international signed from Leicester two seasons ago but failed to win the trust of three successive managers at the club.
Frank Lampard used the midfielder in some pre-season games this season but it was always a long shot for the player to make the first team.
The 29-year-old who recently made a loan move to Burnley revealed his delight in making the transfer. Speaking to reporters after the move Drinkwater spoke of his intent to get his career back on track.
There’s no better way of describing it and I am looking forward to cracking on,’ he said.
‘It feels good to be home and now I just want to concentrate on my football. ‘From the people I’ve met so far, this feels like a nice family club with down to earth people and staff, and that helps.’
The midfielder was part of the Leicester City Premier League winning squad in 2015, playing an immense role in the success. Burnley would be hoping that the player can contribute largely to the success of the team this campaign
Drinkwater on his day is capable of spraying passes and dictating the tempo of games which is exactly what Burnley needs. The Clarets have lacked creativity and struggled last season.
It would be interesting to monitor his progress this season under Sean Dyche.
